Duncan Zavislake

Duncan Frank


Aug 5, 1949 – Dec 21, 2012

It is with great sadness the family of Duncan Zavislake shares his sudden passing on Dec 21, 2012 at the age of 63.

Duncan is deeply missed as husband of 30 years to Evelyn, brother to Colleen, and Dad to the family dogs: Micro, Benson, & Beau, as Nephew, Cousin, and Uncle to many family members, and as VE7ZAV to the Ham Radio community.

Duncan was known far and wide for his technical expertise, willingness to help others, never-ending captivating stories, and would always have the requisite part in his basement — somewhere!

Duncan was partner with Jack, Ben & Corry of Vella Radio; a thriving communications business in Salmon Arm. A previous oil-exploration career landed Duncan in countries all over the world, and he was a Lifetime Member of NORAC.

Family, associates, and friends are grieving and seeking solace in knowing Duncan’s heart failed while doing what he loved — troubleshooting a technical issue for a client.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada — BC Branch.
